First Sick Fish

I have a female swordtail who doesn't seem able to lift the back of her body. She is swimming around with her tail fin dragging. Anyone have any idea what is going on.

No spots, not lopsided, just dragging her hind quarters, struggling to swim to top of tank now and then.

Try looking through these sites:
http://www.aquatronicsonline.com/hobbyist/hobbyist3.htm
http://www.aqualink.com/disease/sdisease.html#ich
http://fish.mongabay.com/diseases.htm
http://www.wetwebmedia.com/AqBizSubW.../fishdisho.htm

Did this come on suddenly?
Have you added any new fish lately? New substrate? New filter, heater...?
